All About YUMI™ Lash Lift Enhancement | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Lash Care, YUMI | No Comments

Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

Let’s talk lashes. More importantly, let’s talk the YUMI™ lash lift. Spring & Summer are right around the corner, and so are those beach dates!

The YUMI™ lash lift is perfect for those who love spending time in the water or gym frequently as you don’t have to worry about using specific face washes after (such as the lash extensions). It’s also the best lash enhancement option for ladies who love their natural lashes look when they’re curled.

Today we are going to answer some of our most frequently asked questions about lash lifts! If any of your questions aren’t answered, feel free to email us at info@prepbeautyparlour.com! Let’s get started!


Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour
1. How long does it last?

The lash lift should last anywhere from 6-8+ weeks! Sometimes even 12 depending on your natural lash cycle and how fast your lashes shed and grow out! However, some ladies with grown out lashes may notice odd kinks- to solve this, we recommend applying the 3D Keratin Lash conditioner. This conditioner not only has keratin in it, but also conditions and keeps your lashes healthy and shiny!

2. Who is best suited for the YUMI™ lash lift?

The YUMI™ lash lift is suited for those who have strong, healthy lashes! If you have weaker or thinner lashes, we recommend you try out the lash growth serum EYENVY, to grow and strengthen your lashes before the procedure for best results! For those lucky ladies with long and strong natural lashes, the lash lift can look comparable to eyelash extensions!

Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour3. Can pregnant ladies get the YUMI™ lift?

Yes! The YUMI™ lash treatment is 100% safe for new moms! However the new hormones surrounding the pregnancy may hinder the YUMI™ products from completely performing the service. If you decide to go ahead with the YUMI™ treatment, please do so at your own discretion, and understand there may be no effect on the natural lashes. (Unfortunately due to store policy, Prép Beauty Parlour is unable to offer full refunds for any lash services).

4. How should I prep for my service?

Before your appointment, please refrain from using any eye makeup or remove it before you come to your appointment. This it to avoid any extra added sensitivity surrounding the eye area.

For 24 hours prior, we also ask that you avoid using any growth or lash serums as this may cause the lashes to not lift during the service.

5. Can I get the YUMI™ treatment while I still have lash extensions on?

Unfortunately as the treatment is an enhancement on your natural lashes, the lash extensions will get in the way of the treatment. We also do not want to be adding the perm solution to any synthetic lashes!

6. Can I get lash extensions while I have the YUMI™ lash lift?

Yes and no. Getting a lash lift if you naturally have stick straight, or super curly lashes can help get your natural lashes into a good ‘curve’ and make it easier to apply lash extensions. However if you have naturally long lashes, then get extensions after the lash lift treatment, your natural lashes will be too curvy for the synthetic lash to be applied.

7. Is the treatment vegan friendly?

Yes! The YUMI™ lash lift treatment is vegan, non toxic, hypo allergenic, paraben frees cruelty free, and formaldehyde free!

Best Lash Retention Tricks | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Eyelashes, Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

PRÉP BEAUTY PARLOUR LOGO Best Lash Extensions Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

We say this all the time- the better you care for your lashes, the longer they’ll last! Of course, there are other factors that come to affect the longevity of your lashes. Such as the change in weather, natural lash at the end of its cycle and shedding, or the use of makeup. Some of these are inevitable. So we should learn to care for our lashes the best to our abilities! Let’s dive into how!

Best Lash Extensions Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

Lash Cleansing 

  • Properly cleansing your lashes at least twice a day is essential to keeping your lashes healthy and long-lasting. You might be thinking… hmm wouldn’t it cause my lashes to fall out if I am cleansing them? The answer is no! The adhesive used is water proof! As long as you are gentle and using an OIL- Free cleanser, (see which one we recommend here!) It should leave your lashes looking clean and fresh! Not cleaning lashes leads to build up (especially if you’re a make up wearer! Which then puts extra weight on your natural lashes and cause fall out/ damage).

Best Lash Extensions Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

Stop Getting So Many Fills!

  • We see a lot of clients regularly coming in every 2-3 weeks for fills, which is perfect for keeping lashes looking fluffy and full! But it is also easier for the lashes to fall out faster after their 3rd or so fill. We recommend you come in for a full set followed by 2 fills, and then getting a removal and starting over with a fresh new set! This way the lashes aren’t in different “cycles”.

No Mascara or False Strip Lashes! 

  • Mascara and falsies are perfect for a night out, they’re super fluffy, long, and just look so darn good! But! Mascara and false strip lashes are the mortal enemies of lash extensions. Not only do they put on extra weight on the lash extensions, but they can also damage the natural lashes very badly when being removed. However- there is a way around it! Extension safe mascara! (Check out our favourite go- to mascara here!) Extension safe mascara is lightweight and easy to remove. Making sure you don’t have to aggressively rub to remove ALL the product!

Magnetic Lashes [REVIEW] | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Eyelashes, Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

PRÉP BEAUTY PARLOUR LOGO

Last week we asked you lovely ladies if you wanted to see a review and our thoughts on some magnetic lashes! We were very lucky to have sent some from TOK Beauty to test out!

The magnetic lashes come in a pack of 4- both top & bottom for both eyes, or in double sets. They come in a beautiful packaging and have a magnet where the lashes reside on. The TOK Beauty website claim the magnetic lashes to be “user friendly, cruelty free and all natural” (TOK Beauty). So what are our thoughts? Let’s dive right in!

User Friendly” …

Well.. Not exactly. Although the lashes were a beautiful, wispy style, they were very difficult to apply because of how stiff the lashes were. We also found the lashes to be quite short and thus- didn’t fit completely on the eye (at least for our model!). We think that with more practice, we may be able master the art of applying these fun magnetic lashes!

Here are some photos!

Overall, we think this is a fun a cool concept for those who don’t often put on a lot of makeup! Just slightly difficult to apply. Perhaps if we get more practice applying the lashes we can get them to look much more natural! For now- we’ll just stick to our lashes extensions!

Have you tried out these magnetic lashes? What are your thoughts?
